Looks like another liberal just got mugged by reality, learning the hard way that Commies sure do love them some purges.
Pride — with its messages of love, acceptance and self-expression — is a sham, according to conservative gay rights activist Brandon Straka.
The 42-year-old Harlem hairdresser said the gay community turned its back on him once the former “diehard liberal” — who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — switched to the Republican Party.
According to a complaint filed Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court and exclusively obtained by The Post, the LGBT Center in Greenwich Village discriminated against Straka by canceling his 250-person WalkAway event “LGBT TownHall” in March, days before it was scheduled to take place.
The event was to feature Straka and a panel of two gay men and a transgender woman talking about why they left the Democratic Party.
Straka left the Democrats in 2017 after growing “fed up with the liberal-media lies,” he said.
He founded the WalkAway campaign, which encourages voters of all stripes to leave the Democratic Party, in May 2018.
Straka, who is dating a fellow conservative, said he learned his WalkAway event was canceled by reading the news on the LGBT Center’s website.
In its statement of cancellation, the center wrote: “We reserve the right to cancel any event that promotes discriminatory speech or bigotry; negatively impacts other groups or individuals … Permitting this event to proceed would make many of our community members feel unsafe.”
As part of Straka’s suit, he alleges that the center’s statement was “intentionally defamatory.”
(The LGBT Center did not respond to a request for comment.)
Well, of COURSE they didn’t.
As a result of losing his community, Straka said, he won’t be marching in this year’s Pride parade.
“It was always my favorite day of the year,” he said. “It’s turned into one big anti-Trump rally.”
Now, he added, seeing the city blanketed in rainbow flags and slogans of love of acceptance only strikes him as “hypocritical … It’s pretty hollow. Right now, the focus of this community is the hatred of this president and anyone who supports him. The so-called love they espouse is not compatible with their relentless hatred in the name of resistance.”
Well, of COURSE it isn’t. They’re liars, they’re frauds, they’re hysterics; they’re authoritarian, totalitarian, and rigidly intolerant of dissenting views. None of that should come as any surprise. What, did you think they were only joking when they were screaming “the personal is political” or something?
